I watch YouTube videos to study how people speak and I often hear "I will do this" "I will do that" when they are talking about morning routines or something. Can I use "will" in the following context?

My typical weekend? I just relax at home and run errands. I go grocery shopping and get my car washed. I will go to Costco to buy food that I need for the week and will get a car wash on the way home.

    yes....."will" here is not a signal for the future.....rather it is an abbreviation for the expressions "I will likely do something" or "I will often wash my car" and similar........will here indicates very likely possibilities or actions that are performed frequently but are not obligatory.
